A reminder that all Team Ontario tryouts have been suspended until further notice.

ISWO has extended its program closures until the end of August, and will revisit the decision at the beginning of September. Information will be communicated about remaining tryouts, when ISWO resumes it’s in-person programming. Please note that athletes have not been selected for Team Ontario at this time, as we are only half-way through the tryout process. ISWO staff will work with our Team Ontario Sport Managers and Coaches to plan a safe and accessible ‘Return to Sport’ plan. In the meantime, we encourage all Team Ontario hopefuls to keep practicing and developing your skills safely, and within the guidelines provided by local public health officials.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON ISWO PROGRAMMING

ISWO continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic situation in the province of Ontario and bases its decisions on the recommendations provided by public health authorities. Given the recommendations for the continued use of social distancing, the use of face masks for all indoor public environments and anytime when social distancing is not possible, and the strict limitations on summer camps and sport programming, ISWO has made the difficult decision to extend its in-person program closures until August 31, 2020. The organization will reassess the situation in mid-August and provide an update as to the potential for resuming in-person program opportunities at that time.
